    All the hall marks of a cheap mass produced bike. No way to identify unless you get lucky around someone recognizing that tube/head set gusset. No intrinsic value. – mattnz Sep 14 '17 at 4:27

    As it lies, that's some scrap steel. If you find some wheels it could be a BMX again. Other than that there's literally not a lot to go on. The one-piece crank shows its a low-end bike. – Criggie Sep 14 '17 at 12:45
  • It's a little better than your average BSO -- I can believe the suggestion that it's a Mongoose. But it's not really worth anything, unless you want to built it up as a hobby. – Daniel R Hicks Sep 16 '17 at 21:05

That bike frame is a Mongoose.

My parents bought one for me at Christmas in the late 70's. It was known and very popular for the rims it came with, which were called "moto-mags"

  • Excellent answer - I've edited in an image that has the same gusset behind the head tube. If its not what you meant, feel free to change it with the Edit link. I notice this one has a different crank and chainring, and the fork appears much skinnier than OP's one. – Criggie Sep 16 '17 at 22:51
